Puu Poa condo description
Our Puu Poa Penthouse 412 is honestly THE VERY BEST of all the 56 units within Kauai's best condo community. Those who know this best, Our Guests, constantly say this. Its LARGEST 2,180 square foot floor plan is COMPLETELY private (only the moon & stars can look down on its two penthouse level ocean decks), and includes 830 square feet of ceramic tiled oceanfront lanais left open to the sky to enhance the incredible views and trade wind flows. Almost all rooms, due to 412's prime location within the arcing design of the Puu Poa complex, face directly straight-ahead toward the legendary Bali Hai vista with fantastic sunsets. As we all know - in real estate, the three hallmarks are : Location, Location, & Location. Our Puu Poa Penthouse 412 is in the finest location within the Puu Poa community, period....
The dramatic advantages of 412's precise location within the Puu Poa complex are very clear IF you will take the time to CAREFULLY review our Virtual Tour of our residence via the website link given below. Such time will be well spent in your selection of a vacation experience. Please do observe the amazing Bali Hai & Hanalei Bay views all of our Guests enjoy and why they spend so many hours on our two large open ocean decks....
This unique truly CENTRALLY AIR-CONDITIONED penthouse corner end unit sits at the ocean edge on two sides, affording 270 degree views of the ocean through window walls from living room, dining room, kitchen, master bedroom, and two lanai decks. This simulates the same feeling as standing on the captain's bridge of a modern ocean liner with extraordinary vistas in many directions.... Unique huge sloped picture window in dining room, two kitchen windows give additional views of the ocean, surfers, migrating humpback whales, fabulous rainbows. It is no small wonder then why Bruce Stark, the famous U.S. real estate developer - builder of Puu Poa, chose not to market our Penthouse # 412 and kept it as HIS PERSONAL HOME ON KAUAI for the first six years of existence before it became ours to enjoy and share with Guests such as YOU.... Do please allow us that privilege.
The advanced degree engineering graduate and PH 412 homeowner chose to keep both of our ocean decks open to the sky and their spectacular Bali Hai direct frontal views, rather than impede the flow of the trade winds and obscure those fantastic views with a metal and glass/plastic structure that would serve to trap excessive solar heat loads inside, affecting the comfort of all interior rooms....
Carrier CENTRAL AIR CONDITIONING SYSTEM quietly serves all rooms, delivered by hidden in-wall & ceiling insulated large ducting, that evenly controls 412 at guest's selected temperature and comfortable humidity level. This is NOT a wall-mounted add-on 'ductless' A/C system, nor use of 'room' air conditioners. PLEASE REALIZE the CONTROL of BOTH TEMPERATURE and HUMIDITY IS IMPORTANT ! High-end ceiling fans in living room, dining room, both bedrooms are alternative means of comfort control when favorable trade winds and moderate temperature & humidity exist; allowing guests to open window walls to enjoy soothing sounds of ocean waves breaking on beautiful Hideaways Beach immediately below (visible from our 412 ocean decks !).
This prime penthouse unit has 9 foot or higher ceilings in ALL areas, and features 20 foot high living room cathedral ceiling with unique stained glass celestory windows - providing an extra sense of spaciousness, additional light, and more precise climate regulation.
Deluxe plumbing fixtures, including double width side-by-side whirlpool bath with precise thermostatic & blower electronic controls, 40 square foot showering area with 7 sprayheads, extensive mirrors (Bali Hai is visible from the showering area, whirlpool bath, & toilet !), two head main bathroom shower stall, quiet extra large capacity Affinity front-loading quality electronic washer & dryer, deluxe one-piece toilets, 80 gallon & tankless water heaters, ultra large corian kitchen sink & bath vanity, two lightweight cotton waffle robes in each bath, beach towels in linen closet for your use at ocean & pool.
Custom designed high end furniture to fit the geometry of each 412 room, beautiful fabrics, numerous tropical floral arrangements, and original artwork including huge Sapphire Blue nine section living room sofa, 12' tall Bali Hai living room tapestry, four panel dining room koi mural, unique Hawaiian Koa wood cabinets in kitchen & dining room that were custom built on site, master bedroom king sized platform bed with backlit shoji screen wall featuring koi-etched glass panels. Heavy glass dining and cocktail height tables & chairs, two chaise lounges, two deluxe rope-slung relaxation chairs, 11 foot diameter hotel-quality market umbrella, large commercial stainless steel 220 voltage electronic barbeque on the ocean decks.

Two-line cordless telephones in dining room and master bedroom, and second bedroom has useful big button speakerphone - all three provide our guests with unlimited free long distance service within the U.S. and Canada. Answering machines at each phone gather incoming messages for you.

Widespread use of seductive recessed lighting --- in living room cathedral ceiling coves, over huge sectional sofa, over koi mural in dining room, over Bali Hai painting in living room, over kitchen counters & electronic cooktop, and over master bedroom headboard jungle painting & koi-etched frosted illuminated glass panels. Remote controlled Japanese lantern and rope lighting on both ocean decks add romantic touches. Dramatic dimmer-controlled blue starlights surround the master bedroom king-sized platform bed.
